Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold may support improved split-screen mode: Report


The Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold is likely to launch with a display upgrade over the Pixel Fold, Google’s first foldable smartphone that launched in May 2023. Reports earlier this year suggested that the alleged Pixel Fold 2 smartphone could be called the Pixel 9 Pro Fold and feature a much larger display. A new report suggests that the rumoured foldable device could come with improvements to the split-screen mode. It is also expected to get an upgraded resolution over the current model.

Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold display details (expected)

As per a report by Android Authority, the Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold is expected to support an upgraded split-screen mode that will allow users to arrange apps on the left and right sides of the inner display when the phone is in portrait mode. This is reportedly due to changes made to the Android 14 QPR2 code spotted by the publication. Currently, apps can only be arranged vertically on top of each other.

The report also states that the code does not explicitly mention that it is for the alleged Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold. However, since the upcoming Pixel Fold successor is speculated to be the Pixel 9 Pro Fold, it is likely that the change in the code will be reflected in the alleged handset.

The report says that the Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold is expected to have an inner display resolution of 2,076 x 2,152 pixels. If this is true, it is a further improvement over the 1,840 x 2,208 pixels resolution of the Google Pixel Fold inner display.

Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold features (expected)

Earlier reports had said that the Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold will have an 8.02-inch main display and a 6.29-inch cover screen. This is much larger than the current 7.6-inch inner display and 5.8-inch outer screen of the Pixel Fold.

The Google Pixel 9 Pro Fold may feature the Tensor G4 SoC, which was previously tipped to support emergency satellite connectivity. The current Pixel Fold has the Tensor G2 chipset.
